About the artists


She prefers industrial materials, like styrofoam, copper pipes, mosaic; earlier she preferred to use leatherette and ropes, painted canvas and the packages of technical devices (notebook, TV, iPhone). Her torsos represent a specific transition between abstract and figuralism, ritually reproducing the visuality of fiction, virtuality, and simulation. Her ‘oh-so-familiar’ works of art question the difference between real and fake, real and imaginary and propagate an alternative universe, where also humans are just represented (by avatars) and not present anymore.
